President Bush pardon’s jailed Fugees affiliate John Forté.
As his presidency draws to a close, as customary with past out-going administrations, President Bush has granted pardons to 16 convicted felons on today (Nov. 24). Among them John Forte, a former back-up signer for Carly Simon and close friend of The Fugees member Wyclef Jean (he appeared on Wyclef’s 1997 album, “The Carnival”). Forté made news in July of 2000 when he was jailed on drug trafficking charges in Florida.
